question du jour

Do you keep your receipts? You know, when at a restaurant and using plastic, do you keep the receipt and then file it away somewhere?

I have a bad habit of sticking them in my wallet with the intention of filing them...but really, who I am kidding...I don't file anything

I know, I'm bad.

This leads to my bonus question- what sort of wallet do you have? Do you like it? I need a new one and I'm not entirely sure what I want.

I don't, but I'm the most disorganized person in the whole world so I'm probably the wrong person to ask.

I usually take the receipt with me and end up throwing it away later. My wallet is from Old Navy. I got it last year for Christmas. I love it. :)

I have one of the short wallets from Espe:

But they don't make the design I have anymore. :( It's called "City Kitty."

I don't save receipts unless they have coupons. I usually use them to wrap my gum in while shopping! Ha!
(conversely my so saves his and then enters his spending in an Excel spreadsheet...we're such contrasts, I swear...)

I only save reciepts for things I might actually have a need to return (electronics, more expensive clothes). For groceries, cheap stuff I'd never bother to take back, etc., I usually just toss them.

I recently bought a wallet from picklehead on etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5090975) - she has some very cute stuff. Mine was made with thrifted/recycled materials, which I totally support!

I just got one of those frame wallets and I love it.

I do not save receipts for clothes until I wear them and then the receipt gets chucked. I never save them from restaurants but always take them with me. Why? I have no idea.

I don't because I'm a slacker.

receipt. What is that?

I tend to keep them in my wallet or purse for an extended period of time before throwing them away.

receipts? you mean trash paper? I go so far as to tell the clerk "you can throw it away, i don't want it". i'm that lazy, i have never filed a receipt in my life..
